Textron’s Aviation’s externship program offers an immersive, experiential learning experience for educators, counselors, administrators and other individuals who have a direct impact on K-12 students. Participants will be taken through the “Design, Build, Fly” process to better understand the path from concept to production and delivery of our aircraft. This will provide educators with the knowledge to help counsel students in career pathing and beyond.
